The government is a living organism where rearrangements (of positions), both dismissals and transfers, should be viewed as a normal occurrence, said Eduard Sharmazanov, press spokesperson for the ruling Republican Party of Armenia (HHK), speaking to reporters in parliament today.
“I can say one more thing, that the issue of future elections is very important for Armenia. We assume responsibility, in the first place, before our public. I believe that all political entities with our public will be ready so that the 2012 parliamentary elections qualitatively be a new stage,” he said.
To a reporter’s statement that rumors say that parliamentary speaker Hovik Abrahamyan’s resignation is not connected to managing the HHK’s election campaign headquarters, and that he might not assume this position, Sharmazanov said:
“The closer we get to elections, the more there might be many theoretical sensational views in the media. I don’t take those opinions seriously.”
The HHK spokesperson, however, didn’t mention Abrahamyan’s successor, noting only that such important issues are discussed at meetings of the HHK executive body and board.
“The agenda of these meetings hasn’t yet been decided; when it will, I’ll let you know,” he said.
